So as not to be confused, two things:
* Furrion is a wireless video transmitted signal to the monitor.However, your Mini Lite is pre-wired for 12 volts powered through the running lights. The Furrion camera has a positive and negative wire for power only.
* Furrion has two rear view camera systems:
One is a back up camera system. The monitor to this system is powered via the TV back up lights. It only operates when the TV is in reverse and the running lights are on.
The second system is a rear view monitoring system that is powered via the TV ignition system. When the running lights are on and the ignition key is on, the rear view camera is on. This system acts as a rear view mirror at the back of the TT. This is the system I would be going for if you use the Furrion. It is on going forward or in reverse as long as the running lights are on.
As for cost, there are no cheap dependable rear view cameras. If you choose to go anything but the Furrion wireless system, hard wired video would be the second choice. But that means completely wiring the TV and the TT which would be much more expensive-and problematic.
